COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On a rainy fall day in 2009, my five-year-old daughter Zoe and I were wandering the streets of Bar Harbor and stumbled across the Whale Museum. Zoe loved it. Hopefully we do the same for you. Cheers! Our Happy, Hoppy, Amber-Ale

Aroma of spice, floral, very flowery with a spruce note, not very citrusy hops but more herbal and apricot pear like. Taste gives a earthy malt body with almost rye notes, not traditional caramel sweetness, this beer is quite dry, reminds me a bit of a Sahti, but with a refreshing hop twist.

Bottle at the Breens Hampton house. Pours murky dark Amber, frothy off white head that persists. Tons of pine and earth malt grain notes. Hoppy dark brown ale characteristics and a hit chewy. Tasty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle shared by Bvery...thanks man! Dark cloudy amber pour. Hop forward aroma. Taste follows with bitterness lasting. Liking the wheelbarrow better but this is still awesome.

The shining star of the non-lottery beers at World of Beer Fest. A very drinkable beer, this one goes down smooth. Toffee and caramel flavor with a mildly bitter finish. Outstanding.

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2015
On tap at Church Key, DC. More or less clear in the glass, amber in color, topped by a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma it’s on the malty, almost meaty side at first, followed by bread, caramel notes, grapefruit and some pond cones. It’s full bodied and smooth, with a nice carbonation level. Where the malts dominated the aroma, the hops run the show in the flavor. Grapefruit and pine cones, with bready malts in the back. Lasting finish. Quite nice this one, how an amber ale should be. 150620

kevinsenn (1436) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle. Aroma of whole wheat bready grains, some c-hops. Grainy toasty taste, not much caramel, c-hops, and a very dry bitter finish. Tastes more "brown" than "amber" to me, if you know what I mean. Looks more brown too.

500 ml bottle purchased at 7-11, Kittery. Jason is still doing a great job as the manager of this store! Selection is always up-to-date and spot on. Color is copper with lasting head. Aro,a is toasted grain, caramel and mild grapefruit.

The base is that of a standard Amber ale with toffee, grain and caramel. The hops are a mix of grapefruit and moderate pine. The bitterness shows me dry pine with a gritty texture. Kind of dirty. Highly drinkable but nowhere near my favorite from this brewery.
